Paint The Town Pink!

Good Morning All!
Here I am with a GDT card for Guylous Inimitability!
I was lucky enough to win one of their challenges a couple of weeks ago 
& I was invited to GDT for them! Yippee!
Here's my card!

I made an A5 card using the fab sketch below!
The papers I have used were from a stash swap I did ages ago,
but I think they are from Do Crafts.
The pink paw print ribbon was part of a candy I won ages ago.

So simple but lot's of possibilities

The image I used is called Sundae & Paint 
With a name like that I had to use ice creamy spring time colours!
I coloured Sundae with promarkers.
Next, I cut out the image with a Nellie Snellen frame die

I added a couple of flowers which I stained with an ink pad 
then  layered & a couple of punched leaves

The Happy Birthday Ticket is from 
The little paw shaped brads are from my stash!

Here are the Challenge Details!
